The Rodney Street Apartments featured two very roomy bedrooms, a living area and full-size kitchen with combined washer/dryer. It provided a mid-size fridge suitable for longer stays and appeared to have most things you would need for basic cooking. We were also happy with the size of the bathroom, which included both bath and shower. The provided wi-fi was also fast and reliable and the apartment was well-heated.
The two main selling points for the Rodney Street Apartments were its location and price. While it may not be in the heart of Edinburgh, there is a bus stop to the city right outside the door and it is less than 15 minutes to walk. There was also a good Chinese restaurant across the street and a large Tesco around the corner, about five minutes walk away, where you could also find an ATM.
As for not-so-positives ... the apartment complex is a little tired and the outside stairs area smelled a little damp. In addition, staff were not available on site, but did respond quickly and easily to a phone call.
In all, this was good-value accommodation, central to the sights of Edinburgh, with the added bonus of being fully self-contained so you can minimise your holiday costs.
